The section of the building that has been listed by Chestertons - Hyde Park spreads across the fourth and fifth floors.

Daniel Copley, of Zoopla, said: “This beautiful penthouse would make the perfect home for a buyer searching for a bright and airy space that doesn’t compromise on luxurious touches.

“Despite its modern interior, which includes direct lift access and a sleek kitchen - the property also has an interesting history and was once the home of WH Smith - of the well-known high street store.”
